The Dear Hunter at the Canal Club


Just in case you're one of those people who think Green Day's most recent 18-track epic, “21st Century Breakdown,” lacks in the ambition department, you might consider looking into the Dear Hunter. Not to be confused with Atlanta's experimental noise rockers (that's Deerhunter), this brainchild of songwriter Casey Crescenzo is only at part three of his six-installment rock opera.
